Man, what a learning
curve! And I though I knew computers
and networking pretty well. The secret trick is that you have to have a static IP address in the adapter to access the bullet and select a network, then change to Getting an IP address automatically to be able to access the Internet. The default settings and configuration for the bullet are fine. My wireless mode is station and the network mode is bridge. Oh yeah, and you have to know to hit select under the wireless tab to connect to a network!
Now that it all works, it works great. I have the bullet running to a 12volt Netgear router so I have my own wireless network on the boat!
The other thing I ran into is that there is no good bracket on the market to attach the bullet and antenna
to a rail. I saw one I liked on Wave Wifi's website so I called them. Carl and Richard were both super helpful and one of their custom made brackets is on its way to me. Bottom line is that if I were going to do it all again I would buy a setup from Wave or Island Time PC. They take care of a lot of the configuration for you and the technical support can be priceless!
Thanks to everyone here who got me going in the right direction.
